This was our first time to stay with Ken and Sue at Hale Maluhia and one of our first stays at any B&B on the islands. Having visited this wonderful place nine times we've stayed in accomodations ranging from camping (our favorite form) to plush resorts and decided to see what B&B's were about. What seems to tie all of... More

Just finished a long stay at the beginning of March, 2015, and everything went very well. It's not a new property, but everything works. It's convenient for visiting the big island. The breakfast meal is as large or small as you would like, and the birds make for interesting morning entertainment. I've never met a friendlier staff. If I were... More

We absolutely loved our stay in the Banyon cottage. Sure some things were old and not 100% clean but made it more homely. Linen and bedding were all fresh and clean. Beautiful environment, great breakfast and terrific staff.

I was in two minds about booking this place, based on other reviews I had read. However, I decided to go ahead since we only had 2 nights there anyway. Although I had chosen and reserved a particular room, we were told on arrival that the people who were in there decided to stay an extra couple of days so... More

As Usual, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... But there were some issue that we would have been happy to have fixed in the first day you were here. The tub is a very expensive 1980 cast iron "soaker" tub, It was clean but we can replace the anti-skid strips in the bottom and make it look a... More

As return guests at Hale Maluhia my wife and I have nothing but the best to say about this wonderful B&B. We've stayed in the Japanese tea house (a separate structure) and in the Malia Room in the main house. We found the Malia Room a little more convenient as it's just a few steps to the delicious, sumptuous breakfast... More

We have very mixed feelings about this B&B. This is because it is a place of antitheses. The B&B is really outdated, but the personnel is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating, whixh makes you forget it. The buildings are surrounded by a street (the main entrance is in the peak of the horseshoe turn), but the trees around it cover... More

This was the first time my family and I had ever even considered staying in a bed and breakfast and Hale Maluhia Country Inn was amazing! Ken was a pleasure to work with and the property was breathtaking. The house was well furnished and gave the island feel, the breakfast was amazing and our breakfast entertainment, Mr. Turkey, was a... More

Loved the people and breakfast! The hosts were very kind and helpful. The breakfast was set out beautifully. Fresh fruit and pastries and make your own omelets. It is pretty close to town so that is convenient.

We stayed here with our extended family. We had 9 total and stayed in 3 of the rooms. We found the rooms to be clean and adequate for our needs, nothing fancy or elaborate... Just good solid accommodations. The prepare your own breakfast was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
